Jobs Command

You can use the Jobs command to create a log file that provides the details of the most recent job activity for a specific team project collection. Jobs are run at any time when an update is required to change the information or configuration for a collection. You can also use this command to retry a job for one or all team project collections.

To retry a job interactively, you can open the administration console for Team Foundation, click the Status tab for the collection, and then click Retry Job. For more information, see Open the Team Foundation Administration Console.

Required Permissions

To use the Jobs command, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators security group. For more information, see Team Foundation Server permissions.

Note Note

Even if you log on with administrative credentials, you must open an elevated Command Prompt window to perform this function.

TFSConfig Jobs /retry [/CollectionName:CollectionName] [/CollectionID:ID]
TFSConfig Jobs /dumplog [/CollectionName:CollectionName] [/CollectionID:ID]
